Hi, Dave.

Everything I tested is working great, except for a plugin conflict. I especially like the new "shift-click" for selecting a checkbox range.

With Auto Backup version 1.04 plugin, Background Tasks will not allow me to enable it and the backups aren't created unless I use the "run manually" link. From the error log:

MySQL Error: Unknown column 'function' in 'where clause' in /home/tstbdgweb/public_html/cmsbeta/admin.php on line 59.

Perhaps AutoBackup needs an update?

I've uploaded a new beta here that should have a fix for the issue you identified:

Let me know if that works for you and then we can release this version.
